Shaun of the Dead
Thirty-something slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) has no clue what to do with his life or with his relationship with his girlfriend, Liz (Kate Ashfield). But motivation comes in the form of a freak zombie attack that has once-ordinary citizens terrorizing the streets of London. With support from his well-meaning best mate (Nick Frost), Shaun acts quickly to save Liz and his mother (Penelope Wilton) from danger. But is it simply too late for heroics?

Shaun of the DeadClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is not for kids. Although it's more of a comedy than a true horror movie, there is still enough blood, guts, and gore to turn your stomach and make you avert your eyes. It's also extremely violent -- zombies and humans try to kill each other in every way possible -- biting, shooting, stabbing, impaling, etc. There is almost nonstop profanity and some crude humor. There's also a lot of smoking and drinking, and there are a few drug references. There are also some intense scenes, such as when a son is forced to kill his zombie mother and some characters consider killing themselves.
